The instruction shall also state that all anchoring devices must be placed below the level of the playing surface to prevent tripping or injury
resulting from a fall.

- When the equipment is shipped other than completely assembled, assembly instructions shall be provided including schematic drawings or renderings
which, when followed, will enable an unskilled layman to correctly assemble the equipment and to avoid errors that could result in unsafe assembly.
- Full-size diagrams of bolts, nuts, and washers and a list and description of all tools required shall be incorporated into the instructions. Lock nuts shall be
clearly identified. Cautionary statements shall be included that recommend tightening bolts securely. There shall be instructions advising the buyer to
tighten the nuts on bolts flush to the tube (or member) and that caps which go over the exposed bolts shall put on snug to the nut.
- To prevent serious injury, cautionary statements shall be included which warn that children must not use the equipment until properly installed.
The installation instructions and information shall state the following:
- Create a site free of obstacles that could cause injuries – such as low overhanging tree branches, overhead wires, tree strumps and/or roots, large rocks, bricks, and concrete.
- Choose a level location for the equipment. This can reduce the likelihood of the play set tipping over and loose-fill surfacing materials washing away during heavy rains.
- Locate bare metal platforms and slides out of direct sunlight to reduce the likelihood of serious burns. A slide that faces north will receive the least direct sunlight.
- Provide enough room so that children can use the equipment safely. For example, for structures with multiple play activities, a slide should not exit in front of a swing.
- Separate active and quiet activities from each other. For example, locate sandboxes away from swings or use a guardrail or barrier to separate the sandbox from the movement of the swings.
